When we started this business, most braces were made out of the same neoprene found in wetsuits, but the same properties that make neoprene great for wetsuits (waterproof and highly insulating) make it terrible for being active on dry land.
In 1994, we invented a breathable, lightweight, and compressive alternative to neoprene and named it BioSkin®, because it fits like skin and mimics the body’s natural climate control system. We have since developed a family of materials that work together to make each brace highly functional and exceptionally comfortable. All of our fabrics are made in the U.S. and are designed to be breathable, lightweight, thin, strong, hypoallergenic, and have dynamic, radial stretch.
At only one millimeter thick, our braces are ultralight compared to the competition.
Our braces feature four-way stretch fabrics so they move when you do.
Highly breathable materials help keep your skin cool and dry all day long.
Hypoallergenic materials mean everyone can wear BioSkin braces.
